3 More Days

May 2, 2016

22

The countdown is happening. I have but three more days working as a practicum student at The Polyclinic’s Behavioral Health Department. As I prepare for the day ahead of me – one Mindfulness 101 Group and one Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Group – I find that my heart is both heavy and bright with the fullness […]

Shitty First Draft

March 7, 2016

26

I completed my second to last quarter of grad school, registered for my final quarter of grad school and finished a shitty first draft of the book. It seems much bigger here on the page than it does in real life. Well no, I take part of that back. Registering for the final quarter felt […]

The End of an (Academic) Era

December 31, 2015

67

It’s been nearly six years since I returned to student-hood; a life lived on a cup-o-ramen tight budget and filled with endless peer reviewed articles.

Births and deaths, triumphs and well… non-triumphs. And all through it I am grateful to have remained sober. […]

Missing and Action:

November 27, 2012

80

Yes. I know. It has been quite some time since the last post. I have not fallen off the face of the earth, which I’ve heard is a physical impossibility, unless of course, I am circling in earth’s orbit, which means, of course, that I have — in fact — catapulted myself off of the […]

Walking (In the Sunlight)

October 28, 2012

45

Today and this past week were particularly spectacular. I had the honor and pleasure of visiting my little brother, who is dealing with some very similar issues to my own, and the joy of reuniting with an old girl friend who is both sober and “retired.” One of those incredible weeks you begin to think […]
